    For SLR cameras I feel the OM Zuikos are very good. But I don't believe they can match the best rangefinder wides. Even the lower priced CV seem better than the 30 year old Zuikos.

    I'm sure the Pentax, Nikon, Canon and Minolta SLR lenses are as good as the Olympus.

    I have OM but not rangefinder and I have always wanted rangefinders for their lenses but was never willing to pay for them.

    I agree here. I have a Pentax 20mm, a Minolta 24mm, and have owned a few 28's. 24mm is my most used focal length for general walkabout photography.

    I have found that I feel about 24mm the way most people feel about 28mm and vice versa. With 28mm lenses, I always find I'm wishing for either 35mm or 24mm (essentially the same way you feel about 24mm). I do like 20mm and wider as well, but these lenses often feel a bit more specialized to me.

    I usually find my 35mm is wide enough most of the time. If I need wider, I go to 24mm, but not often. Personally, 24 is a nice comprimise between 21 and 28.
